Great Food in an Old House

Went here with a group of 6 and we all loved it. I had the wagu beef steak and it was very good. The mashed potatoes were awesome! We will definitely eat here again when we visit Newberg.

This is our second time visiting the Newberg area, and we decided to give this place a try. The location was convenient, and the house it occupies is nice, but the overall experience was a little disappointing. Service was a bit slow, and our waiter seemed a little distant. Our starting courses were ok but seemingly a bit under seasoned.... More

This is a comfortable place in a retrofitted house with a very nice atmosphere. The food was really excellent. All the ingredients are local and the chef creates some impressive blendings of flavor. Servings are adequate but not large. I had the gnocchi with oyster mushrooms -- subtle flavors, delicious. My colleague had the duck breast and enjoyed it very... More

Stopped by Recipe for lunch hoping for a no-brainer. I was a little disappointed. Restaurant was very quiet. Service was a little hesitant. Food quality disappointing. Not what I expected from before. Maybe it was an off day for all. Menu items were not inspiring for me to return soon. Wow! Wine prices have gone up!

Saw the many excellent reviews for Recipe in Newberg, OR, so thought we'd check it out after a nice afternoon of wine tasting throughout the Willamette Valley, and absolutely loved it! Set in an old Victorian-style home, the place is warm, small, and intimate. The service was attentive but not intrusive. They had a rather large selection of wines, both... More

Our dinner at Recipe was excellent! Healthy foods, beautiful presentations, attentive wait staff. Our group, aged 14 to 80, was very pleased all around.

We really enjoyed our meal at Recipe. The restaurant is in a crowded house -- this is not a place for intimate and quiet dining -- and there was a somewhat off-putting aroma when we first entered. But these were the only real downsides. The menu was excellent, the staff were attentive and helpful, and the range of choices was... More

During the summer we love eating outside and Recipe has a cute front yard with an awesome tree to eat under in the hot weather. According to my husband, Recipe has the best burger he has ever had at a restaurant. His description; Simply made burger on a soft bun, juicy ground chuck and perfectly prepared, cheese, and their special... More

Totally charming, warm and inviting small northwest restaurant. The service was slow and then non- existent when my husband's chair literally crumbled beneath him. He was doing nothing but sitting and he is an average size man. Two men helped him stand up since he was holding the chair together with his hands, hoping he would crash to the floor.... More

What do you get when you combine a beautiful rustic embrace of a room with a talented and creative team and a chef who clearly brings the love? Recipie. The staff was attentive, warm and conversational and Chef Paul's food really tickled this foodie's fancy. It's small so make a reservation, eat the most adventurous thing on the menu if... More
